    What program does everyone use to make flyers? I'm trying to make a few using Word but when I'm adding pictures, my text goes all over the place.
    Is there an easier way to make a flyer?

    I have found the easiest way to make a flyer is to swipe it off of here. :D

    LOL! I was just going to post that I wait until someone creative does one, and then I borrow it!:D

    I ususally use PowerPoint (although I agree with the idea of swiping if off here :D)

    Word really isn't the best for it, but you can change how text behaves around the picture by adjusting the text wrapping. I have Word 2007 at work, so I'm not sure if it works the same way on previous versions, but I can right-click on the picture and I get a "Text Wrapping" option. I usually choose tight, but you can play around with it.

    I use Word, but I put lots in text boxes so I can move graphics, images, etc all around the page until I'm happy with the look.

    In Word, Using Text Boxes definitely makes it easier. And sometimes, you just have to set the graphic "Square" or In line with the text. I forget which makes it work- I usually just play with each until I get them in the right spot. (Text boxes are easiest!)

    But I second the swiping files from CS option. I usually do that, and then just tweak them to my liking or update as needed.

    Is there a way that you can use text boxes but not have the boxy outline show? Thanks for all your help.

    Sure... under the "format" menu, select "text box", then in the first tab (it says "colors and lines") for line color, choose "no line".

    If you have it, publisher is also GREAT, better than word for this stuff. But I agree with the word advice - text boxes are the way to go, and also watch your wrapping in case it starts to screw things up.
